"SMILING HELPS A LOT"


" I look where it is good. I know about the bad, but I look at the good thing."

My friend Aiva sent me a link this morning. I am fascinated with it. I learned from it. I am listening to it real good. It contents meanings and wisdom gathered from a long life with certain great difficulties, that put my proportions in order - " it is not so terrible" - set them right, till I forget again and need another reminder to regulate them. When life acts out a bit on us and we are in danger of feeling sorrow of ourselves, of loosing our "good haze" and falling into haze of uncertainty and fear, it is always helpful to have someone to lead us back to the good things - because there are plenty of them. And even if life deals us really bad cards, this woman's experience and spiritual guidance may give us a helpful insight, a more optimistic outlook, and tools to survive.

"I learned to be thankful for everything
for not being hungry
for being in a good haze
of course of course
seeing the sun
seeing the smile of a good person
hearing a nice word of somebody
a nice word of somebody...

Everything is a present - everything - this I learned, to be thankful for everything."

Maybe this will cause you too to think matters over and after the cry arrive at a smile.

Ohja, ich bin auch jeden Tag dankbar, dass es uns gut geht und dass wir alle gesund sind. So selbstverständlich ist das doch nicht.
Es ist immer so, dass wenn du einen Menschen anlächelst, du ein Lächeln zurück bekommst. Gute Worte an andere Menschen bekommst du immer zurück, es lohnt sich auf andere zu achten.
Liebe Grüße von Zaunwinde

Ja, es stimmt wohl, wir sollten uns am schoenen freuen, wo wir koennen; es gibt so viel schoenes in der Welt.

Was nuetzt es, sich immer wieder zu beschweren.

“Why speak of all your sadness or of life’s painful woe
Instead let the same lips sing a gentle song for you...”

From my favorite song “Always with me”, the theme song of “Spirited Away” by Studio Ghibli.

This is a moving post, Yael.

Iam not religious, I just follow my heart, but I always make sure to be grateful every morning for the present of life and the chance to write a new page.
